The area adjacent to the Capodimonte Museum is characterized by large meadows with various plant species. In this area, in addition to the Royal Palace, there are several buildings, built mainly in the 1700s: the Casino dei Principi, Palazzo Palazzotti, the Stables and the Church of San Gennaro by Ferdinando Sanfelice. Beyond the Porta di Mezzo, you enter the actual wood, with five main avenues that have various crossroads and branches, for a total number of over 100 paths and paths. The five avenues begin in a large square in which there are various eighteenth-century statues.
